Rick was a strong, compassionate man. Toward the end of his life, he would only say he was fine ... and that he loved me. He just never complained and did not want me to worry. He recognized his struggles, and in the end, reached out to God and those he loved. With each passing month, I loved him more and more. I miss my brother.
I went to grammar school with Ricky. He was a great inspiration. How he typed away on his brail typewriter, but more amazing was how he could read raised dots with his fingers at tremendous speed. He bumped his head on tether ball poles twice and got huge bumps on his head. He took it in stride. I will look him up in heaven. Carol Havercroft
